Description: A notable form of this invaluable winter flowering evergreen gregarious shrub, we collected large purple-blue fruit of on our way to Thongdu in the Upper Lachen Valley Eastern Sikkim in 2002 with Sally Goddard at 2800m. A suckering-shrub, with leathery lanceolate leaves forming large colonies with flexuous stems to only 1m tall. Bearing fruit in the upper leaf axils, succeeding the highly scented white purple tipped staminate flowers January-April. Very shade tolerant, easily grown in any fertile soil, good on chalk.
